Hello all! My name is Ricki and I can tutor all Sciences and some math courses.
I graduated magna cum laude from Texas A&M University with a BS in Biology in 2010. While I was there, I also minored in Secondary Science Education and obtained my composite certification to teach all sciences grades 8-12. Educating students and cultivating interest in the sciences is my absolute passion!
I am currently teaching Chemistry and advanced Biology at a local high school and have 5 years of previous experience tutoring both one-on-one and in groups. My main concentration is in Science for the older kiddos, but I have tutored math, reading and science for elementary-aged students in the past. Additionally, I have tutored pre-Algebra and Algebra for both high school and college students.
I believe in individualized instruction whenever possible and have never tutored a student the same way yet! Every student is a different person and learns in a different way, whether its visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. I ask students how THEY want/prefer to learn and work from there. I like making science relevant to students' daily lives and prefer to have discussions about science rather than a monotonous session where I just talk at the student for an hour (blah!).
Thank you for taking a look at my profile and I hope to hear from you soon!
